The Automotive Alchemist

A vividly illustrated celebration of the singular automotive designer.
 

Andy Saunders is a joyfully singular figure in the world of automotive design. The holder of three Guinness Book of Records titles, Saunders brings his unique vision to every project he takes on, whether it’s the restoration of a classic car or the unveiling of a new custom design. The Automotive Alchemist tells the story of Saunders’ charismatic life and work through an examination of sixty of his cars. Saunders welcomes readers into his workshop and his mind: not afraid to express his emotions, as he deconstructs and then rebuilds each vehicle, he lays bare his motivations, inspirations, influences, and passions. Intertwined with Saunders’ biography are detailed depictions of the work involved in the creation of his cars, described here with more than one thousand photographs. The Automotive Alchemist is not only a tribute to a remarkable automotive design talent, but a celebration of the creative spirit in all its forms.
